During this week’s Belfast City Council debate on the placing of the Union Flag on driving licences (something that the council has absolutely no control over), firebrand DUP Councillor Ruth Patterson decided to enlighten all those present with her interpretation of history and how it relates to the vexed subject of ‘flegs’.
Scholars may be somewhat alarmed by Councillor Patterson’s interpretation of history as indeed may some of her creationist colleagues in the DUP who subscribe to the view that the world was created in 4000BC when dinosaurs roamed the earth.
Perhaps they still do.
During her full 10 minute polemic available here Councillor Patterson takes time to review the movie American Sniper, talk about “the massacre of the protestants” and describe Gerry Adams as “well read and poised.”
Not to be missed.
